Getting ready to hit the road on your own for the first time? Whether you are going it alone or banding together with a few friends, heading across borders or heading to college, solo travel as a woman can be powerful, emboldening growth experience. However, safety is always a consideration and some prep work before you go will help you make the most of your journey.
